Minnesota Vikings healthy entering wild card game

The Vikings are nearly full strength Sunday with the inactives announced.

The Minnesota Vikings will indeed be near full strength defensively against the Seattle Seahawks.

In their last meeting, the Vikings were without Linval Joseph, and then Anthony Barr and Harrison Smith both left the game with injuries within the first 10 plays. This time, all three are active, along with running back Adrian Peterson.

Peterson, Joseph, DE Everson Griffen, WR Adam Thielen, DT Kenrick Ellis and FB Zach Line were all on the Vikings’ injury report this week, with Ellis ruled out on Friday and the rest listed as probable. Ellis is the only one of those inactive for Sunday’s wild card matchup against the Seahawks.

Along with him, QB Taylor Heinicke, WR Charles Johnson, LB Brandon Watts, C Nick Easton, T Jeremiah Sirles and DE Zach Moore are all inactive.

For the Seahawks, RB Marshawn Lynch and TE Luke Willson are both inactive, as they were ruled out on Friday. The rest of the Seahawks on Friday’s injury report were all listed as probable and are all active.
